4.0 out of 5 stars Surface Anatomy - The Anatomical Basis of Clincal Examinatio, November 3, 2002
This is an excellent textbook for surface anatomy. Large, full-color photos of models. Pages are glossy magazine stock. Each chapter, per major body area (neck, pelvis, back, etc), includes similar photos of very clear cutaneous nerves and dermatomes - as clear as I've seen. Effectively, the text is broadly clinical, offering more than just rote surface descriptions. As its title suggests, the flow of the text relates surface anatomy to clinical examination and brings it to life.
In addition to very clear depiction of surface anatomy, each chapter includes separate photos for muscle attachments, major nerves and vessels, viscera and, interestingly, standard incision lines for major surgical procedures (eg nephrectomy, liver biopsy, peritoneal cath or laparoscope entry, etc) from head to sole. As a physician, teacher of physical examination, and thermologist, this book is an excellent resource - the cover of which is becoming well worn.
Why not 5 stars? The perpetual quest that there's always a book just that much better is the plague of most medical bibliophiles. Keeps Amazon alive...
